Mandatory reporting and misprision
Max Divergent that's a really interesting letter thanks.
I've been noticing on the forum the last couple of days that poster's quotes from Australian newspapers are really highlighting the misprision of the Australian branch and congregations, deliberately concealing crimes against children.
Australian journalists have really picked up on this that in some states and New South Wales in particular where the Branch is, all individuals have an obligation to report child abuse or risk being guilty of a criminal offence themselves.
It's about time this gross disrespect both for law and for children' safety was brought into the glare of public and official scrutiny.
